Central Michigan's Brandon McCleese, a senior, won the men's javelin with a toss of 191 feet, 2 inches.
Another benefit of these southern meets is that they will most likely feature top-level Division I talent, which will present Central Michigan with stiff tests early in the season.
As expected, the Chippewas were strong in the throws, getting a second-place finish from Dylan Banagis and a fourth-place finish from Logan Targgart in the men's weight throw, which accounted for 12 combined team points.
CMU's Kevin Weiler finished third in the men's shot put with a season-best toss of 17.54 meters and freshman Logan Targgart took fifth with a heave of 16.49 meters.
